Standing For

Making the Board relevant to the Jewish community

 

In my first three years I have stood up and:

✔ Visited communities across the UK and held regular meetings with the Representative Councils

✔ Appointed the Board’s first regional employee in Manchester

✔ Held our first Youth Assembly and appointed an Equalities champion

✔ Been elected as Chair of the Council of the European Jewish Congress, and served as Vice President of the World Jewish Congress and as a trustee of the Shoah Claims Conference

✔ Provided training for Deputies, held coffee mornings and created our popular ‘Bodcast’

✔ Begun the difficult journey of constitutional reform

 

In my next three years I will:

● Listen and use the knowledge of the last six years / recent experiences to consult and make recommendations for fit-for-purpose future governance, representation and procedures

● Train and mentor Deputies to be the future leaders of the community, via an 18 month L’dor Vador leadership programme

● Continue to support the regions as part of our regional engagement plan and establish a Youth Council

● Create a culture of trust that optimises good working relations throughout the entire organisation and ensure the increased involvement of Deputies in the work of the Board


I have travelled the UK, reaching out to every corner of our community
to fight antisemitism, defend Israel and promote interfaith work.
